The Science of Science Communication II
September 23-25, 2013
at the National Academy of Sciences
2101 Constitution Avenue, NW
Washington, DC

Climate change…evolution…the obesity crisis…nanotechnology: Discourse surrounding these and other science-based issues is often overwhelmed by controversy and conflicting perceptions, hampering understanding and action.

The challenges facing scientists, professional communicators, and the interested public has resulted in a growing area of research—the science of science communication.  The National Academy of Sciences is hosting its second Sackler colloquium on this topic to advance a national dialogue.
Highlights of the three-day program include presentations by leading scientists, a keynote address by Kathleen Hall Jamieson, and workshops focused on some of the biggest science communication challenges facing professionals and the public today.
